Caption: Cradle cap. Close-up of a flaky skin rash known as cradle cap (crusta lactea) on the scalp of a 6- week-old baby girl. Cradle cap is a form of seborrhoeic dermatitis: an itchy, flaky rash of unknown cause. It is common in babies and usually harmless, unless the affected skin becomes infected. Treatment includes regular washing and applying warm olive oil or arachis oil to the scalp to loosen the scales. If the inflammation worsens or infection develops, corticosteroid drugs and antibiotics may be needed.
